I am new to Shopify and I am having the hardest time trying to figure out if I can use as my shipping fulfillment carrier. Do I have to change from a basic plan in order to do this?  

Please help, I am trying to launch in a few days!!

Hi @glammedmade 

You can use whomever you like for your fulfillment/shipping, regardless of which plan you are on with Shopify. 

However, if you are looking to have your rates from shown at checkout to your customers, you will have to enable the real-time carrier-calculated rates at checkout. In order to do this, you will have to choose one of three options:

  • Upgrade to the Shopify Advanced plan
  • Contact Shopify and have them add it manually for an additional $20 per month
  • Change from monthly billing to annual billing for your Shopify Basic plan and then contact Shopify to have it manually added for no additional cost.

If you are only using USPS from, however, you may want to just compare the rates that Shopify Shipping quotes to the same shipments from and skip the above step if it isn't needed. In my experience, the USPS commercial rates from Stamps and Shopify have been the same, so you may not need to show your rates at checkout, as you can just show the Shopify USPS rates since they're the same.
